I should have started my new year today, all those nice Ones.  With this 365 photo thing I have to admit that I'm both looking forward to and afraid of the fact that I'll frequently be taking pictures of the same things.  I really want to use this project to help me look around and discover things I might not normally pay attention to, but really I've got a pretty standard routine going back and forth across I-70* every morning.  Home, Work, Home.   Sometimes there's variation, but not as often as there is routine.  Anyway, I think it could be neat to see the same thing every day but see how it changes.  Or it could just get dull.

This morning traffic was bad enough that I was pretty much sitting in a parking lot, which allowed for photos of the commute.  Don't you just love the smell of dog food in the morning?  I drive past the Purina plant, which depending on what part of the food they're processing or maybe just how hungry I am, can smell sort of good or sort of gross. It's usually nice and steamy, but it was extra steamy this morning because it was so cold.

* Did you know that Arizona type folks say "The 70" and Colorado type folks say "I-70"?  I get it mixed up all the time.  I also say Arizona Mills when I mean Colorado Mills pretty much constantly.

This is what happens when the temperatures never gets above freezing, but the sun hits the black metal mailbox.  Snow ribbons.

  1. What "Arizona types" do you know exactly? By my count you mostly cavort about with; a Louisiana type, an Alaska type, an Indiana type, and a New Mexico type.

    P.S. When is the Alaskan type going to post again?
